Visual Description:  A misinformed chess nerd.


Clue/Question:  Where he thought he needed to go to replace the missing piece.

Answer:  A PAWN SHOP

(Not bad.  Not a very difficult answer, but a couple of the clue words threw me for a bit.  Both “speedy” and “coward” had me going.  I was in the reception area of a doctor’s office, and even though no one was actually looking at me, I guess I was a little self-conscious.  I actually wussed out, looked at the cartoon, got the answer, and worked backwards to get those two words.  Guess I’m just not used to having an audience!  Nice scrambling, David.  I was thinking that “botch” might be a new word, but I’ll have to wait on the word from ralis95!  Be good, do well, my friends.)   — YUR

    Yes, BOTCH is another new word! Having to update the database almost everyday now – what with all the new words being used in the puzzles. Good to have the mental challenge back in the game!

    As I told Jeff, database is now up to 2257 words – oops, 2258 with Botch.

    You still run every day?

    I run my mouth every day. But, since my injury I’m still having trouble just walking. PT is helping, but it’s slow going.

    Ah, an easy puzzle for me as each word started with a consonant! Just when I think my 5th metatarsal is all healed…ouch! 4 months for me now and no PT. Doc told me it would take a YEAR for the bone to fuse back completely! Feel better! Try to be positive!

    Thanks, Lesley! I am making progress, just not as quickly as I was hoping to. I’m much more patient with others than I am with myself.
